Remember...There Is Holiday Magic

So for Christmas this year, the kids' big present is annual passes. The problem is, we bought the passes in October. So to remind the kids that they got them for Christmas, I'm taking them today for the last time in '07.

Harper is at the age where he is starting to remember things. Every day we talk about Disneyland with him, the rides, his memories, the cousins and most of all...Jack. He'd watch YouTube videos all day long if we let him, and it is so cute to see him scream with the crowds on the screen when Jack appears at the top of the elevator. Also, when he sees the caroussel and Dumbo, his right arm shoots up as high as it can go and he says "uuuuuuuuuup!"... Funny boy.

Anyway, I thought I'd post a few of his favorite YouTubes since you all won't be with us. It's supposed to rain today there, but we're troopers...and we don't care.

(Daddy, if you're reading this, we miss you! We wish you could have come, but we know you had to work!!! See you tonight!)

Small World Holiday:




and everyone's favorite:



So if you have my "702" cell number, call me and hear the magic today.

BUHBYE!

Oh so Mike isn't going to be there....so that means Harper won't 'accidentally' call me 3 times like the last time you went haha... I swear he does it to make me jealous. Bite him for me too!

One day I'll get to see him be older and more interactive there. He was a lil younger when we saw him there in May...Maybe kissy forgot that? haha

And did anyone else notice at the end of the Small World Holiday that one of the holly leaves was burnt out on the sign? Thanks to my ocd and good observations i noticed.

um, it poured til it flooded the streets, but not til 8 o'clock. We left promptly, since Harper was blue lipped and shivering.

ashleyO said...

awwww dats 2 badd! that was fun texting ya tonizzite!

Mandy said...

so jealous!
so ash is your mom gonna have a huge phone bill from all your texting charges? haha

Æ Photography said...

No she only sent me 2 messages, not too bad. Oh and Ash I was literally getting on Space Mountain when you sent the last one.

Eliza said...

Did you Ice skate?

Æ Photography said...

only the entire time...thanks Mother Nature!

ashleyO said...

hahahha yay for ice skating!!! Dang I wish I could have been there. And yes she'll be mad but maybe she should have listened a year ago when Liza and I tried to get them to switch to unlimited 'tech' messages. They don't understand that that's how people communicate these days. How else do they think I know when FHE is? TEXTS!!!

And that's pretty funny that you were just getting on Skate Mountain. Yay to that!

Lyd said...

I want to go on Skate Mountain!

Hmmmmm, and last month I went over just a bit from teching so much! Oooops. That's what I get for making new friends!! Luckily my dad was able to change my plan for only $10 for a 1000 teching plan....but me thinks that I might need to have unlimited. Really, it is the new way to communicate, and my parents hate that. But who wants to call and ask, "Where are you" or "When will you be home" or crap like that when you can just text it and have the convo be over at that. Much easier. Plus, my mom hates talking on the phone anyway!!! She just needs to start now that she finally learned how! Shesh! :)

HOLF F!!!

Eliza said...

I too tech for the quick ?'s quick answers but for having a whole conversation? Come on isn't that a bit anti-social? Hence when alli teched me and told me she was at disneyland I just did a quick response of u beotch and that was the end of our quick tech message conversation. (excuse my foul tech language)

New favorite word = tech

ashleyO said...

hahah thanks Paulito of the Nelson for the new favorite word!!! I agree. I'm trying to remember what I said to Alli...she might have to let you all know. But her response first response was "Im at Disneyland biznatch" and her response to what I said back was "Oh no you di'ihn!"

what on erff did i say???

Eliza said...

she said the same thing to me so I'm now wondering if her response "oh no you di'ihn!" to you was supposed to go to me for my name calling cause after I sent it I heard nothing....hmmmmm. (was that a run-on or what?)

Æ Photography said...

no I said "Oh no you di'int" to Ashley for something else she said but think it involved her calling me some sort of "WHORE"..."Whore cakes" if I'm not correct.

Also, Eliza's U Beotch was a fitting ending...I love the tech messages.

ashleyO said...

Yes! I matter o' factly did call you whore cakes! lol.....good ol tech msgng

-KJ said...

Teching is the best. Ekspecially for those little jabs. Mr. Paul Nelson and his evolving language is the best too.

Æ Photography said...

Paul is mah favorite.

ashleyO said...

yes. Lil' John from Disney's Robin Hood.....or the Cowardly Lion

Lyd said...

His language will just keep getting better as he continues to loose his hearing!! haha
